What is the most effective way of ensuring that women’s economic inclusion improves after a conflict or a crisis, and of ensuring their political voice increases? This panel discusses the results of research by students of the Center for Global Affairs, New York University, working with the Global Network of Women Peacebuilders on links between gender-responsive provisions in peace accords and better outcomes for women 5 years after the end of a conflict. Foteini Papagioti and Agnieszka Fal-Dutra Santos will present the findings of the research, followed by a panel discussion co-moderated by Dr. Anne-Marie Goetz, Clinical Professor at Center of Global Affairs, NYU and Mavic Cabrera Balleza, CEO of the Global Network of Women Peacebuilders.
The panelists include:
– Mireille Affa’a, Policy Specialist, Peace and Security Section, UN Women
– Nigeria Renteria, Negotiator in peace process between Colombian government and the Colombian Revolutionary Armed Forces (FARC)
– Miriam Coronel Ferrer, Chief Negotiator in peace process between the Philippine government and Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF)
– Ayak Chol Deng Alak, Deputy Coordinator for the South Sudan civil society forum during the negotiations of the revitalized peace agreement
The panelists will reflect on the research findings and share their experiences on women’s participation in peace processes and implementation of peace agreements. They will also discuss how women peace leaders are participating in COVID-19 response, and how to ensure that their efforts result in stronger economic empowerment and political participation outcomes after the crisis is resolved.
